Avery Elle ~ Happy Spring

How ironic is it that as I write this blog post for my Happy Spring card, about 8 inches of snow is falling on our area?  Well, at least I can think Spring even though Mother Nature is not cooperating;)  Today, I'm sharing a card I made with the new Avery Elle Happy Spring set!  This set has such a lovely vintage feel to it.  Reminds of Beatrix Potter:)  

I decided to do a traditional Easter basket card.  But you may say, "JJ, this set has no basket!" and you would be right!  The bottom of the basket is actually the cupcake liner stamp from the set Cupcakes.  The wreath stamp from Happy Spring is the perfect size for the handle.  Using masks, I put together a complete Easter basket with yummy-colored eggs (in this case Mimosa, Aquamarine, Raspberry, and Orchid).  

To create the lattice background, I used the border vine stamp in Celery and Lemon Grass.  The basket is stamped on a panel that I die cut with our Pinked dies.  Love the classic look!

Thanks for stopping in!  Be sure to click over to Heather's blog to see the adorable card she has to share today!   

Mahalo and Aloha,
